Lets shake and skate

This card is for the Unscripted Sketches #81 when I saw this sketch I first thought to make a card looking like a gift and then when I started creating I somehow came out with a shaker card-don't really know how that happened but I hope you like it anyway I thought it turned out sort of ok but I haven't made a shaker card for a Long time and had to think about what I was doing a lot.

I love Penny black stamps although I only have a couple of sets so they get used in bits and bots- not nearly enough for my liking but I think the hedgehogs are so cute. I think it still sort of looks like a gift in a round about way don't you?  It's very relaxing colouring and the watercolour crayons -Lyra Aquacolor crayons- I've been using are so good and will last me forever.image 



Here is a closer shot of the little hedgehog- so darling.
